  • Am I covered to cancel my trip if it becomes unsafe to travel to Greece?

    Unfortunately, no. Cancelling your trip due to your destination becoming unsafe, whether or not a travel warning is issued, is not a covered reason within regular Trip Cancellation coverage. If you don’t want to risk traveling because of the current events in Greece, Squaremouth recommends purchasing a policy with the Cancel For Any Reason benefit. This allows you to cancel your trip for any reason at all, and receive a percentage of your prepaid and nonrefundable trip cost back. Within most policies, this percentage is 75%, but can be as low as 50%.
